Throwback Thursday: Aaliyah ‘Are You That Somebody’

‘Are You That Somebody?’ is the Grammy nominated single by Aaliyah.

It was on the Dr. Dolittle soundtrack. The song was written and composed by Static Major, who also sang backing vocals, and Timbaland, who, wrote, produced, and performed a guest rap for it.

The song samples the sound of a baby cooing from Perrey and Kingsley’s 1966 hit “Countdown at 6″ and D. Train’s 1982 dance classic “You’re the One for Me”.

According to a Static Major article in Vibe magazine, when he first presented the song to Aaliyah, she initially didn’t want to do it. However, she eventually agreed to record it. In a behind the scenes video featuring Timbaland, he reveals that the record was recorded in a couple of hours after a show and that the record almost didn’t happen. Many of the unusual beats and loops used on the song were cut at the now defunct Hit Factory in New York City by Timbaland, NYLA and Danger Jay.

The video was retired on MTV’s TRL and was the third most-played clip on MTV in 1998.
